Application of MVDA, Raman Spectroscopy and Process Control to enhance bioprocess understanding
APC Ltd.
Drug Substance : Biologics

Chinese Hamster Ovary cells are the most widely-used platform for the production of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) by the biopharmaceutical sector. CHO cell mAb manufacturing processes require refinement to ensure that the highest product yield is achieved while ensuring quality. The use of Process Analytical Technology (PAT), such as Raman spectroscopy, enables in-depth interrogation of cell culture operations in order to define optimal feeding and control strategies.

Continuous Production of Anhydrous tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide in Nonane Using Membrane Pervaporation and Its Application in Flow Oxidation of a γ-Butyrolactam
Asymchem Laboratories (Tianjin) Co Ltd
Drug Substance : Small Molecules

Anhydrous tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) is a powerful oxidizing agent in many chemical transformations. Despite its versatility, the use of anhydrous TBHP has been greatly limited because of safety concerns, particularly on a production scale. We describe a membrane pervaporation method that allows the production of anhydrous TBHP solution in continuous manner. The system consists of membrane modules in series that are made of perfluorinated polymer, allowing it to remove water efficiently.

Locating and understanding hydrated forms of an API
Drug Substance : Small Molecules

Facile hydrate formation can drastically alter the processability, stability and aqueous solubility of a given API. Cambrex Edinburgh was able to fully characterize and develop a reliable method for avoiding the hemi-hydrated form of an API that was discovered during a polymorph screening project.

Capture Compound Mass Spectrometry®: on- and off-target deconvolution
Charles River
Discovery : Small Molecules

Capture Compound Mass Spectrometry(CCMS) is an unbiased, proteome-wide approach for the identification of specific-binding protein targets for small molecules and peptides. The technology combines medicinal chemistry and in vitro pharmacology, coupled to high resolution proteomics mass spectrometry to isolate and identify target proteins that are responsible for an observed biological response. This technology can be used in a variety of contexts from target de-convolution and drug re-purposing.

Keywords: target, deconvolution, toxicity

This is not just fill finish: insight from a C(D)MO perspective
Legacy Pharmaceuticals Switzerland GmbH
Drug Product : Biologics

After a long and expensive process to develop DS, biotech companies want to quickly move to First-in-Human. The added value of Fill Finish is often regarded as a simple development step, but it is actually extremely complex in nature. Not enough time for Fill Finish partners selection and technology transfer is usually planned, as well as for primary packaging selection. The establishment of a strong Fill Finish partners network early in the process could save time and money in DP developments.

Keywords: sterile aseptic fill finish contract manufacturing

Development of an early wound model in human ex vivo skin explant as a preclinical model of wound healing
Discovery : Small Molecules

This assay has the potential to be used as an early screening tool for drug selection and topical formulation optimisation for NCE and generic medicine development for the advanced healing of wounded skin. Whether targeting keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation, modulation of inflammatory response, or collagen and fibroblast remodeling, this model has the potential for proof of concept research in the dermatological advancement of topical wound therapies.

The development of a set of novel small molecule inhibitors of the Kv1.3 ion channel
Metrion Biosciences
Discovery : Small Molecules

Ion channels represent 15-20% of historic drug approvals but are notoriously complex targets and require specialised screening technology such as automated patch clamp (APC) electrophysiology. We outline a situation where a pharma company turns to a specialist CRO to fill their knowledge gap. During the collaboration, we developed potent and selective Kv1.3 modulators with nM efficacy against human T-cells and potential to treat auto-immune disease.
